Lyrics

Jamal:
Tell the truth
Tell the truth
Tell the truth

Everyone has a closet
In the night, they wear disguises
In the dark, they hide from the truth
In the end, they lie to you

One day, the skeletons are gonna come out
One day, the elephant in the room will make a sound
Watch out for lions and tigers and bears
It's about to hit the fan, better beware

Tell the truth
Tell the truth
Tell the truth

Tell her why you lie for no reason
They point fingers and bite hand that feeds them
Come along for they know not what they do
Swear to God they know better than you

One day, the skeletons are gonna come out
One day, the elephant in the room will make a sound
Watch out for lions and tigers and bears
It's about to hit the fan, better beware

Tell the truth
Tell the truth
Tell the truth
Tell the truth

The closest people to you can't trust
Your family hurts you more than your friend does
There ain't nowhere to hide, nowhere to go
You better watch them fingers, too damn close

Tell the truth
Tell the truth
Tell the truth
Tell the truth
